Fire Safety Training


Many thanks to Ben and his crew from Market Harborough Fire Station, who came out to talk to some of our clients and volunteers from the  Community Champions project about Fire Safety.  We were surprised that they arrived in a fire engine, but they were on call so had to be ready for the off at any time.

The talk covered cooking safety, bedtime checks, shutting doors switching off sockets.

They also told us what to do in the event of a fire and the importance of checking smoke alarms.

If anybody is without smoke alarms LFRS can offer a free service to go and fit some as well as give you advice in your own home.

The team can do a vulnerable person’s assessment of the home and appliances and give advice information on how to improve safety in the home, to refer call: 0116 287 2241, this will be put through to the local station and the community safety team will pick it up
